Why I don't support Lega Nord

A first generation? As in both your parents were born in sunny Italy?


Where were your two parents born?
Four grandparents?
Eight great-grandparents?

You are quite light; Do you have a bias against the darkest and coarsest elements in southern Italy?

Since this is a PC forum I imagine it's against the rules to posit that Southern Italy is either darker or coarser than Northern Italy.

My mother was born in Stalettė, she came here in the 4rth grade following my grand parents. My dad was born here and is third generation, we assume he was given the name of the town he was from, which is Taverna, and that is also In Calabria.

I have no bias whatsoever, but my mother has a dim view of Greeks, Moors, Gypsies,(what she calls people from eastern Europe) Sicilians, and just about anyone not from Calabria. Our family is Norman, hence the skin. The assumption from my moms maiden name "Markio" is that we were part of the old nobility of southern Italy before the Risorgimento, it means "to mark" as in a person who stamps official seal for the government. So lesser nobility/ bureaucrat. Because of the Risorgimento, the only people my mother dislikes more than Sicilians is northerners, she complains whenever we have Alfredo because its a northern Italian dish.

Anyway, I don't have any of her prejudices, and its not really racism per se, regional rivalry in Italy is comparable to sports teams in America. Sicilians vs Calabrians is like Yankees vs RedSoxs.

My dad is also part Abruzzi, and in my extended family we have Sicilians, Florentines, and Neapolitans. My step grandmother on my dads side is Sicilian, and her and my mom are always fighting on the proper way to make a tomato sauce. Its pretty amusing.

Thanks for for your reply.

Tell that to the 35% or so of the natives of the northern-third of Italy who are open secessionists! (Regular voters for the Nordic League). How many Yankees fans want to establish a nation where only Yankee fans prevail, mainly to spite those idiot Red-Sox fans? :o

secede? How about they just go back to Germany where they came from! Invaders have no right to "secede" they should be happy they have the land they already do. Lombard's aren't natives.

Just so you know, Calabria is the southern most portion of mainland Italy.

The above map proves that GAIUS has much more in common with the light elements of Italy than with the dark elements.

Confer map in http://giulianosforum.createaforum.com/meet-the-staff/i%27m-giuliano-your-lovable-dictator!/msg112/#msg112 to left map above :o

I'm supposed to be a Nazi because your map says I grammatical similarity to them?

Sorry, it does not follow.

Besides, race is a myth. Culturally we have nothing in common.

Light-skinned Italians are "Nazis"? That's dumb.
